Supplies Needed:

At this time I will not be requiring materials for a digital classroom. Should we move back into the classroom, we will discuss materials needed for a sewing project. This would include: fabric (about 2 yards), thread, a pattern, and any notions your pattern may require. Thank you for your flexibility. 


There will be several opportunities to earn points throughout the semester. This includes daily participation, exams/quizzes (including State-made Benchmark & Final Exam), group work, classwork and projects. The grading scale is as follows:

A = 100-90% B = 89-80% C = 79-70% D = 69-60% F = 59-0%


Formal Assessments 25%

Daily Classwork 50%

Projects 25%


Total: 100%


No work will be accepted past the last day of the term. Student work turned in after the assigned due date will result in a loss of points. Students will lose 10% each day an assignment is late. Exceptions are at teacher discretion based on the outcome of a student-teacher conference. All group projects must be completed as a cooperative unit. If cooperation is not apparent, students will be graded accordingly or alternative assessments will be assigned.

Canvas may be used to grade assignments however, the grades in Canvas, while accurate to that assignment, are NOT the gradebook.  My gradebook includes categories of assignments that may be weighted differently and may include grades for assignments that were not completed on Canvas.  Students and parents should always check PowerSchool for true grades.

Work that has received a 0 and cannot be made up will have a 0 in the gradebook.  If it has not been turned in but still may be completed for a grade, it will have a score of 1. 

I have read and understand the class rules, procedures, content and course grade requirements for Apparel I. My child will follow the policies as established.
